Academic Terms

Undergraduate programs and most graduate programs at UCLA use the quarter system for academic terms, credit units, and registration fees. An academic quarter term is 10 weeks of instruction, and there are 146 days of instruction in an academic year. Class credit is accumulated in quarter units (see below). Registration fees are due each quarter. For details on academic dates and deadlines, see the Registrar’s term calendar. For fees, see the fee tables.

The School of Law and Geffen School of Medicine use the semester system.

Language of Instruction

Courses at UCLA are taught in the English language, unless otherwise noted in the course description (for example, foreign language courses).
